Doctor Doctor

Song: Doctor Doctor
Artist: Just Jack
Album: All Night Cinema

Jack Allsopp (born 1 January 1975), known by the stage name Just Jack, is an English musician best known for the songs "Writer's Block" and "Starz in Their Eyes".


Born in North London, Allsopp grew up listening to dance music including breakdance, electro hip hop and house. A wannabe breakdancer at eight, he started DJing at the age of 15 and he soon became submerged in DJ culture and UK garage.

After completing a degree in Furniture Design at Kingston University, he enrolled on a community music production course, which heightened his awareness of sampling and its potential for use. He went on to concentrate on perfecting his sound by night and to take on a series of jobs by day.


Allsopp's debut album, titled The Outer Marker and released in 2002 by the independent label RGR Records, was a collection of songs about modern life, relationships, and the pressures of social situations.

He did not gain fame until 2007, following his TV debut on BBC2's Later with Jools Holland, and then on the Channel 4 show The Friday Night Project, where he performed the single "Starz In Their Eyes", which reached No.2 in the UK Singles Chart; the following three singles didn't make the top thirty. "Starz In Their Eyes" was also featured in the Dolce Gabbana Summer 2008 fashion show. Kylie Minogue also did a collaboration with him, "I Talk Too Much", for the American release of his Overtones album.

He performed at Glastonbury Festival,V Festival and T4 on the Beach in 2007.

He is set to release his third album, titled All Night Cinema, on June 29 2009, preceded by first single "Embers", which had its premiere on BBC Radio 1 on 12 January 2009.

There has been speculation as to the song "Doctor Doctor" being the next single from All Night Cinema as the song and a film clip accompanying it was recently uploaded to youtube.

All Night Cinema is the third album from British electronic music artist Just Jack. The lead single "Embers" was released in March 2009 and has since reached #17 on the UK Singles Chart. The second single is set to be Doctor Doctor. It is to be released on June 1st 2009.
